The following is from my friend. It’s her & her family’s dog. I’ve been posting to various Facebook groups about it:
PLEASE SHARE! MISSING PITBULL!!!😔
Our blue nose pitbull named Royal is missing! She is super friendly but is very timid of strangers. She went missing around Peach street in Ukiah by Big Lots around 5 o’clock today(December 2nd). If anyone has seen her or may have her please contact me at (916) 844-8908. Our family really misses her and really appreciate your help. Thank you!
Hi, everyone. Hope that you all had a good Thanksgiving. I paid for a membership that would not include ads. I also don’t use any ad revenue programs to earn from. Not on this blog, anyway. Either they changed the membership & ads are now a part of it or something else happened. If anyone has any ideas, I’d appreciate it. I only want ads, if, I choose them. Which I didn’t.
I was at the shelter last, Fri, 10 to noon. That being my usual day & time to volunteer. Of the kitties that are currently available for adoption, we have one four year old & another that might be that age or a little older. Neither are seniors. As for the dogs, I don’t think we have any in that age range either.
Since cats can often live longer than dogs, especially if they’re indoor only, senior often starts for them at past 10. For many dogs, that age is their upper limit. So, being a senior for them is considered what the last 25% of their life is.
We have two senior kitties. Both 11. Though, the way they run around, chase & wrestle each other, you’d never know it. Do you have or have you had an older animal companion?
Hi, I don’t know how many of you on here are from CA & if there are any, if you’re in one of the affected areas. Those who aren’t from CA, many have friends and/or family who are or you have read about the fires. Do let me know you’re safe.
Ron (my husband) & I live about 10 miles south of Redwood Valley. That’s where one of the fires is located. Fortunately, we didn’t have to evacuate. We just saw & smelled the smoke. The air was thick with it. Some days the quality was in the dangerous zone.
For those that live around there, I’m sure you know, Coffey Park (Santa Rosa) was leveled. My aunt & uncle had lived on Espresso for 30+ years. My aunt passed a few years ago. My uncle recently moved to Monte Rio with his new wife. Which is good, because, he lost everything, but, thankfully not his life.
The following was posted by Nikkie Angell on behalf of Diane Butler at the Lost & Found Pets……..Northern California! Facebook group:Today a good friend of mine had his Schutzhund 3 dog, Hank taken. Hank was my dog 4 years ago so I have some skin in this too. Hank, wandered away not very far from his office/warehouse. Apparently a fellow in a Yellow pickup coaxed Hank into his car and drove away. Just so happened an employee of my friend saw Hank sitting in this guys front seat as he drove by within a block or 2 of the office. My friend called the local Police in Rancho Cordova, CA and reported it. Cops came and took report. Although some what vague with info the cops told us that the fellow who found Hank took him to the Sacramento animal Shelter on Bradshaw Rd. The fellow told the cops that the shelter was closed when he got there so he couldn’t drop Hank off. Instead, he said that he met a woman and her teenage daughter there in the parking lot (of Animal Control). They had come to the shelter hoping to adopt a dog. According to this fellow who found Hank, he gave Hank to the woman and daughter and they drove away with Hank. He neglected to get their names or any contact information. The Police looked at camera video at Animal control and sure enough the story checked out. Unfortunately the camera did not catch the lic number to their vehicle. We were just told that it may have been a blue and white truck or SUV type. That is not confirmed yet but its all we have so far. The handling officer will not answer my friends calls. He last told him that they were now only handling this as a missing dog. Animal Control said they were not able to assist because the dog was never actually turned in to them. The exchange happened in the parking lot.
As you all can imagine my friend and his family are worried sick about this. My friend was totally dreading having to go home and explain to his young daughters who adore and sleep with Hank every night. I would really appreciate it if everyone who reads this will share on Facebook. We hope it could reach someone who will be able to help. When and if I get more information describing the woman and daughter and her vehicle, I will ad to this post. Hank is a very large dark sable dog. He is 8 years old. Im new to FB so I don’t know exactly how this works but several people told us to tell the story on social media. I will try my skills at including a few photos that I have of him. Thank you in advance.
